This reinforced concrete apartment building is located in Aglantzia, Nicosia and is composed of the semi basement and ground floor, which will be utilized as parking and storage space and two upper stories which accommodate residential flats and the roof which will be used partially as roof garden. Structural design challenges were mainly related with long spans in combination with the flat slab requirements. The enhancement of the seismic performance of the building was accomplished by the introduction of shear walls, which fractionally contribute to the stiffness and the resistance of the lateral load resisting system.
